Big Barda commish by MichaelDooney Big Barda commish by MichaelDooney
Barda is one of my favorite comic characters. She's a lot bigger than my ideal girl but there's just something appealing about her that I always liked. I like her armor and helmet look too, but folks usually prefer to see more skin ;)

I love the fact that you kept that Jack Kirby feel to the drawing, I love your pin up style of drawing is kind of neo-classic respecting the characters original looks and understanding the characters personality you've captured their style flawlessly, I think your steam punk portraits are brilliant , god bless you I wish you ever lasting success.

I really love Big Barda too :) I just love her relationship with Scott and how powerful a woman she is.

Wonderful job on the anatomy - her abs are really well-rendered!

Another fantastic piece!
And I'm with you; the helmet & armor are my preferred look for Barda. But then...she looks good in *anything*!
